The language of colors

When you send someone flowers, you are generally trying to tell them something: “I love you,” “I support you,” “I celebrate with you.” But did you realize that the color of flowers you choose can reinforce or clash with that message? Here are a few tips and choices on how to boost your intention with the language of colors you choose for flowers.

Flower spotlight: eucalyptus

When you hear the word eucalyptus, it may make you think about cold and flu remedies or creams that treat muscle aches, but it’s also greenery that graces bridal bouquets and event flower arrangements alongside peonies, hydrangeas, orchids, and other beautiful blooms. It is so versatile that you see it in everyday designs as well. Pinterest is bombarded with it daily.

Caring for non-flowering plants and succulents

Non-flowering plants like ivy and succulents are must-haves in the world of decor. If you’re looking to add a little life to your home or office, try cultivating a few indoor plants.

Flower spotlight: astilbe

Originating as ornamentals in Japan in the 1800s, astilbe is a stunning flower that can brighten any room with their tall, feathery-soft looking sprays in reds, purples, pinks, and whites. Astilbe is also known as False Goat’s Beard because it does slightly resemble a beard.
